Apron, Halloween, and Christmas Decoration swaps…

Valerie from Yarni Gras! is hosting her first Apron Swap ! She came to my blog to see the stuff I’d made for Jennifer from the Booming Aprons swap.  She liked my apron so much that she invited me to join her swap.  When someone that has made lots of aprons asks me to join her swap, I take that as a huge compliment! Is there any wonder why I joined the swap?!! (besides, I only own 2 aprons… one of which is the spooky, sparkly one from Jennifer.  and I don’t think I can get away with wearing that this winter!)

Deadline to sign up: Sep. 25th. Deadline to ship packages: Oct. 25th. Feel free to mail earlier though.

Create an apron (half or full) for your partner, Choose 3 ‘little somethings’ they will like to go along with the apron, Wrap everything in tissue with a simple ribbon before mailing.

my partner is???? (shhhh…it’s a secret!)

Indigo Blue is having a Christmas Deco ration Swap….

I got my swap partner!  It’s Gina Ferrari from  the UK!

The idea is that you design and make a christmas decoration suitable to go on a tree or hang from a door handle. Nothing too big or heavy. Any medium or technique can be used but do think about postage. A christmas card is then included (handmade or shop bought?) so that the swap/ gift is complete.            

your swap should reach your partner by the end of November at the very latest.
